TULSA, Okla. — Police in Tulsa say a homeowner captured a would-be burglar and left him hogtied in the front yard for officers.

Police say the homeowner heard someone trying to break into his home at about 6 a.m. Wednesday. Tulsa television station KOTV reports that the homeowner captured the man, tied him up with rope, then left him outside.

Police say the homeowner had to go to work so he left his wife to watch the suspect until officers arrived.

The 31-year-old suspect was jailed on a first-degree burglary complaint. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.
